    So this fellow Marine of mine got himself this new knife.
    Probably a 6-7 inch blade I guess.
    Anyways I guess he was tossing it around and it went right through his boot and into his foot.

    :rofl: He had to go see the doc.

    DAMN, thats almost as bad as this guy that had a Kabar that he got from his dad(old school Devil Dog) as a graduation present, he'd seen his dad shave the hair on his arm he kept this knife so sharp, we'll just say his dad was a lot better with knives than he :Ownedd: He still has a big scar, and can never wait for winter so he can roll his sleeves down :rofl:

    edit:actually thats worse, a whole lot worse than that guy I know

    When I was 12, I was out in the boonies (Wyoming). Dad had given me his combat knife (Navy) a few years prior. I was sharpening it, and the blade slipped and sliced off half of the knuckle on my left hand trigger finger. It stopped right before a vein that runs over the top of the knuckle. There I was in the middle of nowhere with this big flap of skin and knuckle hanging off my finger.

    I knew I'd get in serious trouble if dad found out what I'd done, so I just washed it up, folded the flap back down, and wrapped it up real snug with gauze. And stayed away from him for a while. :mamoru:

    I told the same story (with visuals of my knuckle scar) to my boys when each of them got their first knife. So far, neither of them have sliced up any part of their anatomy. (Although John has a nasty scar from some cigarette dare contest he did with his drinking buddies) :mad:

    I also have a REAL nasty scar on the inside of my left forearm. There's a story behind that one, but I don't tell it very often.

    My uncle has a huge scar on his chest from some operation when he was a kid. Something was wrong with his heart and he wasn't growing at a normal pace.

    Anyways, now he tells chicks he got attacked by a shark. :rofl:
